Thecus N2310 NAS Server Network Storage Review
     Fri, Jan 31 2014 | 4:17P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Thecus N2310 Network Attached Storage Server is a product that is breaking new ground for the NAS market. Power to the people, NASes for the masses, whatever you want to call it, the N2310 is about driving the cost of NAS ownership down. Thankfully, Thecus recognizes that no one wants a NAS that runs slow, or one that doesn?t have modern features like mobile access. So, the N2310 is all about providing the lowest-cost, technically-acceptable solution. That?s a fine line to tread, and many companies have tripped over themselves trying to do that. Benchmark Reviews has tested quite a few NAS products in the last few years, and we?re in a good position to evaluate how well the Thecus N2310 meets its mission statement."

Toshiba PX02SMF020 200GB SAS SSD
     Fri, Jan 31 2014 | 3:26P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Just like with most computer hardware components compared to just 2 years ago continuous price drops have finally rendered SATA SSDs (Solid State Drives) almost as mainstream as HDDs allowing more and more system manufacturers to integrate them into their systems regardless of target audience. Certainly SSDs are still at a huge disadvantage in terms of price/capacity compared to regular mechanical HDDs but on one hand most consumers don`t really have very large capacity needs while on the other you can always use the SSD just for OS (Operating System) needs and have everything else on a second or even on a third drive. However things are not the same for professionals and especially enterprise clients since both performance and storage capacity are crucial with cost following far behind. Thus far we`ve only focused in testing SAS HDD models manufactured by the leading companies in the field but since SSD prices have dropped quite a bit (both consumer and enterprise models) we decided to also start on SAS SSD reviews and what better way to do that than with the latest release by Toshiba, the PX02SMF020 200GB SAS 6Gb/s SSD"

MSI Z87M Gaming Review
     Fri, Jan 31 2014 | 12:28P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At this point let the form factor be your guide, with the price differential between the ATX and MATX boards are right at $30, with the Z87M Gaming currently selling for $159. Overclocking the Z87M Gaming was just as easy as it was on the Z87-GD65, however I just could not get 4.7GHz fully stable on the Z87M Gaming. Maybe a little ring rust, but running the Z87-GD65 at 4.7GHz was just the same as when I reviewed it back in June of 2013. Memory overclocking with my Hynix MFR-based memory was just as easy with a quick push up to 2800MHz possible with some sub-timing tuning. However to get there the clock speed and ring ratio need to drop down to a max of 42 on my specific Core i7 4770K. A golden chip it is not."

AMD Catalyst 14.1 Beta Driver Brings Mantle Support Frame Pacing Phase 2 HSA
     Fri, Jan 31 2014 | 11:10A | Drivers | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The potential for Mantle is still there and some of the impressive numbers that AMD is quoting with 40% performance improvements will at least keep me interested until the company can get the project wrapped up with bow on it for consumers. I WANT to believe in what AMD is showing us and I WANT it to succeed because I think PC gaming deserves a chance to showcase its capability and advantages over consoles. It is pretty obvious as this point that AMD should likely have waited a bit longer and worked a bit more with DICE to get Mantle ready."

Android App Pick - Torque Pro - BCCHardware App Pick

Posted by: STAFF
We have just posted up another Android App Pick of the Week and this week we are getting our gear-head on. We`ve got an Automotive Application that may not be the most appealing app for you if you only own a bicycle, but if you`ve got a car or a truck and have spent more than $20 at a mechanic, you`ll love what this app can offer in terms of easy-to-understand diagnostics as well as full support to monitor and test your automobile. Torque Pro is not a free app, but it`s worth every penny!"

Logitech G35 Gaming Headset Review @ ocaholic
     Fri, Jan 31 2014 | 9:00A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Meanwhile Logitech have quite a selection of gaming headsets in their portfolio, since there is the G230, G430, G35 and G930. Today we`re having a closer look at the G35, which had been release no less than four years ago. We`re rather curious to find out wether this headset is still able to keep up with the vast variety of other headsets that are out ther ein the wild today. Since this particular model features a USB plug, 7.1 Virtual Surround sound and G-Buttons, it might still be up for a good fight with the competition."

Intel Core i7-4960X Ivy Bridge-E Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Jan 31 2014 | 8:31A | CPU / Processors | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Perhaps the biggest change though and the main selling point of the Ivy-Bridge E 4960X is the reduction in fabrication process from 32nm to 22nm which should equate to the new CPU being much more power efficient. For the overclockers this means less heat which hopefully will equate to higher overclocking. Our bomb proof Intel i7-3960X was capable of hitting 4.8GHz with regularity so we hope to reach this level with the i7-4960X as a minimum. Less voltage requirements and less heat production would obviously be welcome too."

SilverStone ML05 HTPC Case Review
     Fri, Jan 31 2014 | 5:50A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The deceptively small ML05 HTPC case from SilverStone sits in a class of its own. Part of the Milo series of entry-level HTPC cases (designed to incorporate features from the Grandia series in a slim form factor), the ML05 is one of the most inexpensive home theater enclosures on the market. Essentially half the size of the previously reviewed micro-ATX ML04, the smaller Milo ML05 still checks a lot of the home-theater specific boxes: short depth, available optical drive, room for additional storage, and enough airflow to keep things quiet. Benchmark Reviews has a chance to evaluate the SilverStone ML05 Mini-ITX HTPC case (model SST-ML05B) to see what building a different kind of computer in a different kind of case is like."

Tenda W1800R Wireless AC1750 Dual-Band Gigabit Router
     Thu, Jan 30 2014 | 4:17P | Networking | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Much like everything around us wireless technology also keeps evolving every day and with it so do all related devices such as routers, modem/routers, repeaters, access points, Wi-Fi dongles and much more. Now i can`t say that Im much of a Wi-Fi person myself since i have and will probably always prefer wired connections over wireless ones for many reasons (mainly however because of increased safety and speeds) but i know that the same doesn`t apply to most people. Recently we saw the introduction of the latest 802.11ac standard (backwards compatible with b/g/n devices) which promises much higher throughput and data rates compared to the previous standard (802.11n). The W1800R Wireless AC1750 Dual-Band Gigabit Router by Tenda is the 2nd router to make it on our test bench with support for the new standard and today we are taking it for a quick ride to see how it does."

Thermaltake Tt eSPORTS Volos MMO Gaming Mouse Review
     Thu, Jan 30 2014 | 3:26P | Mouse Pads | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Tt eSPORTS Volos gaming mouse is a mess of a gaming mouse if I`ve ever had one. It is literally a kluged piece of work that smashes an Xbox controller with one from PlayStation and births a reject even to Darwin`s standards. You can`t hold it like a controller, though the buttons are placed like you should just pick it up off your desk and attempt to do so. It`s like it wants you to not only have two thumbs, but an extra small or ring finger as well. Finding the buttons while still trying to click and shoot, or even just look around, is like trying to actually do your homework while playing Warframe; it`s just not going to happen."
